Success and Growth in the Natural Products Industry

John Roulac will share with you the secret to Nutiva's success and growth in the natural products industry, as a leading hemp manufacturer, while sharing with us category and consumer hemp trends.
John Roulac

From the age of three, John was blessed to spend his summers playing among the tide pools and forests of the Pacific Northwest. When a truck driver dumped nuclear waste nine miles from the Roulac home, John began his central life journey-to study natural systems and discover practical solutions to pressing environmental challenges.

As an avid street basketball player, he learned to incorporate the use of natural foods, yoga, and acupuncture as ways to improve his game and overall health.

John has been a passionate advocate of holistic living for more than twenty years, working in the areas of whole foods, natural healing, organic farming, forestry, water and energy conservation, recycling and composting, and hemp agriculture. Founding Nutiva was a natural extension of John's dream of a society that places people above profits, one where access to wholesome and organic food is a God-given right for people everywhere.

We have arranged for special room rates starting at just $99 for Sunday and Monday nights at the Holiday Inn - Civic Center. Through a special arrangement, the hotel is also offering the same room rates for a limited number of rooms for HIA members who are exhibiting at or attending the SF Green Festival, so you can conveniently stay there for both events. (You must stay at least one of the nights of the HIA Convention to get the special rate.) The hotel is close to the SF Concourse Exhibition Center where the SF Green Festival is being held.

Please note: Attendees are responsible for making their own room reservations. Early booking is highly recommended. Once our block of reserved rooms runs out, we cannot guarantee the hotel will have a room for you.

You may call the hotel to make your reservation or you may book online.

Please remember to mention the Group Booking Code: HIA when booking to get the HIA group rate and be sure to get a reservation confirmation number.
